Maurice Shanahan starts for Waterford as Limerick make tweaks for SHC clash in Walsh Park

Both sides are hoping to bounce back from defeat last time out.

LIMERICK HURLING BOSS John Kiely has made two changes to the side who lost to Cork a fortnight ago for this Sunday’s Munster Senior Hurling Championship trip to face Waterford in Walsh Park (throw-in 2pm).

While there are reshuffles among the forward lines with the same personnel, William O’Donoghue is named to start in midfield as Doon’s Darragh O’Donovan drops to the bench.

Patrickswell man Diarmuid Byrnes is also held in reserve this time around with Paddy O’Loughlin instead named alongside Tom Morrissey and Declan Hannon.

Waterford, meanwhile, have responded to defeat against Tipperary by welcoming Maurice Shanahan, Darragh Fives and Mikey Kearney into the starting line-up with Jack Prendergast, Philip Mahony and Patrick Curran making way.
